Product description

Review

Roman Holidays is an impressive collection. These essays offer a broad and refreshing range of perspectives on Italy as a space of provocative and productive otherness in the U.S. cultural imaginary of the nineteenth century. Familiar figures such as Hawthorne, Margaret Fuller, James, and Howells come in for original treatment, as do authors less frequently associated with Italy, like Melville and Frederick Douglass - and such important sculptors as Harriet Hosmer, Hiram Powers, Horatio Greenough, and William Wetmore Story. Abundant dialogue with the best recent scholarship further distinguishes this valuable volume. - Eric Haralson, author of Henry James and Queer Modernity
